Square granny purse hand bag

Hello, today I will provide a simple step-by-step guide to making a “Square Granny” style handbag using crochet. Make sure you have the necessary tools and materials before you begin:

Crochet yarn (choose the color of your choice).
Crochet hook suitable for the chosen yarn.
Fabric lining (optional).
Sewing needle (if you want to add a lining).

Step 1: Preparation
Start by winding the crochet yarn into a ball, leaving a loose end to start.
Use the appropriate crochet hook for your chosen yarn.

Step 2: Start the magic ring
Make a magic ring: Hold the loose end of the thread between your thumb and middle finger. Wrap the yarn around your index finger, then pass the needle under the yarn between your fingers.
Pull the crochet hook back through the ring and make a chain to secure the ring.

Step 3: Make the center of the square
Make 3 chains (equivalent to 1 double crochet) to start the first row.
Inside the magic ring, make 2 double crochets.
Make 3 chains to form the corner of your square.
Repeat: 3 double crochets inside the ring, 3 chains three more times.
Join with a slip stitch in the third double crochet of the first chain.

Step 4: Continue increasing
Slip into the next chain space of 3 chains.
Make 3 chains (1 double crochet) to start the next row.
Make 2 double crochets within the same space.
Make 3 chains to form the corner.
Within the same space, make 3 more double crochets.
Repeat the pattern in the 3 chain spaces around the square: 3 double crochets, 3 chains, 3 double crochets.
Join with a slip stitch in the third double crochet of the first chain.

Step 5: Continue making careers
Keep repeating Step 4 until your square reaches the desired size. Each row adds a new set of 3 double crochets in each corner and on the sides.
You can add as many rows as necessary to reach the ideal size for your bag.

Step 6: Finalization
Join with a slip stitch and cut the thread, leaving a tip.
Use the sewing needle to hide any loose ends inside your work.

Step 7: Assembly (optional)
If you wish, you can line the inside of the bag with a piece of fabric cut to the same shape as the square.
Sew the lining in place using a sewing needle.

Step 8: Handle
You can create a strap for the bag by making a long chain of crochet stitches or using a pre-made bag strap.
Now you have a DIY “Square Granny” style handbag! Remember to customize the colors and size according to your preferences. Have fun creating your crochet bag!
